For the second time in less than a week, a newly acquired veteran has decided to retire. This time it’s cornerback Chris Houston.
CB Chris Houston has announced that he will retire.

Houston, the Falcons’ 2nd round draft pick in 2007, was signed by the Panthers in June after missing the entire 2014 season with a toe injury. No formal explanation for his decision was given.
With this sudden change, as well as the injury to Star Lotulelei, the Panthers have made a few roster changes.
